... Destroying His Momentum For The Elections.
In the above video, the “aye” vs. “nay” count is difficult to discern, but precinct delegates can be heard clearly calling for “division.” According to Robert’s Rules , which govern such meetings, a call for “division” is a request for recount of a voice vote. The call for division “cannot be debated, or amended, or have any other subsidiary motion applied to it.” The chair is required to take another vote by other than vocal means.
Eventually Rick Santorum won Iowa. NOT till Mitt Romney gained a ton of momentum saying he won Iowas (momentum is how the GOP seems to choose candidates!) But then Santorum dropped out... so the delegates from Santorum switched to Ron Paul and this got covered up in most mainstream media outlets - It seems like the nominee was decided and people not liking that was considered to be a minor inconvenience. The GOP simply changed the rules to a point where now you got them signing loyalty oaths. It's like they are creating a cult! the fact that the media is also covering up the fact the Mitt Romney comes from a "religion" that strongly resembles a cult is even more disturbing!
With Ron Paul suppressed, the Ron Paulians didn't give up... then this happened...
But for some strange reason the other news outlets/programs didn't cover this.
Then this happened...
All of this, including the outright coverups during the voting process (which I remember but can't find any mainstream sources for), should be covered in a ton of detail is all mainstream US outlets of News TV but isn't - there is an old friend of George Bush on the Board of Time Warner so CNN makes sense. Fox News is owned by Rupert Murdoch whose close family friend has been charged in the UK and is liable under the US law of bribery abroad (this is England!)... but nothing has happened on TV... thus nothing is being done.
Rachel Maddow - GOP forcing Ron Paul Supporters to sign 'loyalty oaths' to Mitt Romney...
Loyalty oaths? To Mitt and His Magic Underwear?
This sounds more and more like some sort of 'Lord Of The Flies' remake!
More GOP desperation to win no matter what they have to do, what rules they have to break... or how immoral they have to be... One side is huge money in politics, the other side is voter suppression...
Can you imagine what it must be like for a trillionaire NOT to win an election ... when they have not only suppressed voters BUT HAVE ALSO POURED HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY INTO IT!
The best part, he must believe his sacred underwear makes him invincible... many Mormons do, it's a fact.
Do you want a man who thinks he is protected by his underwear to be the Commander of the United States Army? That's just plain crazy.
BTW, all of this is "normal" in US politics...
The fight for truth within the Republican Party goes on, while the rest of the country and it's media (overall) says nothing. Exposes nothing. A mention is the most Ron Paulians ever get on TV, which is apparently enough to satisfy the people, who only watch TV, that the news has been reported!
The national Republican Party is supporting the Louisiana state party over supporters of Ron Paul in a dispute over the delegation to represent the state at the national convention in Tampa.
The Republican National Committee's Committee on Contests affirmed state party chairman Roger Villere's conduct of the state convention in Shreveport, It released its decision late Friday in Washington, D.C.
Paul's supporters contend that the state party made illegal last-minute rule changes to thwart a Ron Paul majority elected in congressional district caucuses in April.
The state party and the Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney campaigns said the supplemental rules protected the results of Louisiana's presidential primaries.
Paul delegates wound up holding a separate convention.
"The LAGOP executive committee again submitted false information in an attempt to mislead their fellow Republicans," said Charlie Davis, who led the Paul campaign in Louisiana. "I'm not really surprised by the preliminary ruling and I'm looking forward to finally presenting our case in Tampa. The wheels of justice move slow and I remain hopeful that when all the facts are presented the truth will win out."
Villere said he thinks the Committee on Contests has settled the matter. "This was their best shot," he said.
The committee found that the rule changes "were not a material change to the manner of electing, selecting, allocating, or binding national convention delegates."
There's more, but no main stream news sources that I found in my quick run through. Here's a sample...
11:00pm EST – CNN sends their election coverage live to the last remaining open precinct in Nevada, located in Clark County. The polling place remained open extra long to accommodate strict religious observers. The voter demographic of the precinct is devout Christians and Jews who refused to violate their Sabbath day by voting during daylight hours. 15 percent of the state’s precincts have reported, Romney still leads with approximately 46 percent to Gingrich’s 22 percent, Paul’s 20 percent and Santorum’s 12.
11:15pm EST – With apparently nothing better to broadcast, media outlets like CNN announce to viewers that they’re in for a treat. They will see the Caucus process, live in action. The outlets would broadcast live from the last open Nevada precinct.
11:45pm EST – For 45 minutes, actual voters at the Adelson precinct being broadcast live on CNN and other stations, gave some of the most heartfelt one-minute speeches in support of their candidate – every single one of them was caucusing for Ron Paul. This was no Ron Paul rally either. This was a closed-door caucus. These were actual voters who were about to vote at this particular precinct. According to 40 minutes or so of speeches, it appeared Ron Paul should capture 100 percent of the vote in this Clark County precinct. **Thanks to a much valued reader, it's explained that the Adelson precinct had let each candidate's supporters speak one candidate at a time. This was the segment CNN chose to air live and simply the Ron Paul campaign's turn to speak. In fairness, Ron Paul's speakers at this location did in fact out number all speakers from all other candidates combined.
12:00pm EST – CNN and the other outlets finally broke away from the speeches when no other candidates besides Ron Paul appeared to have any voters present. Only moments later, the network broke into its all-night election coverage to announce that the precinct viewers were just watching had begun to count the votes and had decided to do it publicly, letting the national media outlets continue filming.
12:15am EST – In riveting coverage, an entire auditorium full of hundreds of voters fell silent. One by one at a table assembled on a stage and with campaign representatives watching over their shoulders and the entire nation watching, the GOP precinct captain shouted out each vote as he unfolded each paper ballot.
12:30am EST: For five minutes, CNN sat in silence as the Republican precinct captain shouted out each vote while dozens of tabulator sat nearby keeping track. Unfolding one sheet at a time, the man yelled, “Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul.
12:45am EST: Based on your author’s quick mental addition, it appeared Ron Paul would capture roughly 70 percent of the vote in this precinct, with Mitt Romney coming in around 20 and Newt Gingrich around 10. The entire time, every news outlet repeatedly congratulated Mitt Romney for his avalanche victory in Nevada.
12:55am EST: The official Nevada Caucus vote count was still stuck where it had been for the last 4 hours. 47 percent of the vote counted and included every county but one. 53 percent of the vote still outstanding, all from Clark County – the largest county in Nevada representing more than 60 percent of the state’s voters. It’s also the scene of the Caucus site just broadcast showing Ron Paul winning overwhelming.
1:00am EST: The same precinct captain in Clark County calling out votes 30 minutes earlier was now about to announce the final vote totals from the nationally televised caucus site. With CNN showing it live, the rough final vote count (going from memory) was 150 for Ron Paul, 50 for Mitt Romney, 20 for Newt Gingrich and 8 for Rick Santorum.
1:05am EST: The same above precinct then announced they were going to recount each and every vote to insure an accurate vote count.
1:30am EST: CNN and the precinct captain revealed the results of the second count. This time Ron Paul’s count was roughly 183 (58 percent of the precinct’s overall vote) to Mitt Romney’s 45, Newt Gingrich’s 20 and Rick Santorum’s 8. (Again, all numbers from your author’s tired, late-night memory. If the media wasn’t blacking out the coverage now, we could share the actual numbers with our readers). Paul supporters are extatic knowing that they won overwhelmingly in a precinct full of Jewish and extremely Christian voters, two of Ron Paul's worst demographics. In fact, CNN entrance polls showed that Ron Paul won overwhelmingly among voters who said they weren't religious.
1:35am EST: Your author, and thousands of Ron Paul supporters still waiting up and able to do simple math, deduced that if Ron Paul won 58 percent of the vote in a large Clark County precinct and that was representative of his performance county-wide, the Texas Congressman should win the Nevada Caucus. Clark County alone represents more than half the vote in the entire state of Nevada. If Ron Paul won 58 percent of the 53 percent outstanding, compared to Mitt Romney’s 47 percent of the 47 percent counted, it’s a Ron Paul win.
1:45am EST: CNN blacks-out election coverage, shutting down the studio without so much as one word of explanation or warning. Switching to human interest stories with an afternoon anchor for ten minutes, the network the shut all live coverage completely, opting instead to rebroadcast the entire night’s early evening election coverage. Every minute of the broadcast for the next few hours replayed Mitt Romney’s victory speech repeatedly, along with all the CNN pundits declaring Mitt Romney the landslide victor with 3 percent of the vote counted.
1:50am EST: A quick check of Fox News revealed the exact same tactic. The network had switched to replaying its entire early evening election coverage. Viewing like a Mitt Romney campaign commercial, the network was repeatedly rebroadcasting the Mitt Romney victory speech from hours earlier. Their pundits also spent the entire time congratulating Romney on his overwhelming victory, with just 3 percent of the vote reported.
1:55ampeRon Paul campaign. Instead, they continue to inform their readers and viewers that the Nevada Caucus is over and it was another landslide victory for media and GOP favorite Mitt Romney. [Read more]
A look towards the future (National Convention in Tampa)...
2. Electronic voting systems have been introduced to improve the voting process. Since their inception, they have been controversial, because both the technologists and the general public realized that they were losing direct control over an important part of the voting process: counting the votes.

On My "Rhetoric": Everything in my blogs is proven. You want rhetoric based on lies then you can go back to the arguments between the Founding Fathers. You can't touch my proofs.
1. Founding Fathers arguing in context of today's politics...
The only thing different this election is Mitt Romney using Newt Gingrich's tactic when Newt gets caught lying, i.e. you're getting mean be polite! Well, the founding fathers didn't do that. Let's see if Mitt Romney can handle truthful attacks against his outright and proven lies (see above).
2. Mitt Romney's Is Using Divisive politics like when he endorsed Scott Walker who divided his State so badly he went through a recall election - He was doing the opposite of Ronald Regan too! (i.e. Mitt is DEFINITELY using Frank Luntz - see video of Frant Luntz above)
